      This may be due to a change of engine idle speed. Raising the RPM lowers the drone effect in the cabin I guess.

      Although they are not really expensive parts, the labor to change them can be a...

      I may well be in a similar situation when March 2015 comes as our main client contract comes to an end. If we can't renew, I may be out of a job. :( The good thing is the car is paid off so it will...

      Yeah, Canadian winters are bad for salt & calcium. The body/paint looks like new but the underside is a whole different story. I'm sure a lot of bolts are seized as well. :thumbdown:
